Christmas is just around the corner, and we all know it means – Santa Claus is coming to town, but so is the probability of falling off the health wagon!
Christmas for those who celebrate can be a time of fun, family, and festivities. Statistically, though, the holidays are also synonymous with mindless eating and our natural rhythms going out of whack. It’s easy to get carried away when you are having fun. Especially after the last two years of living in isolation, time spent with family and friends is incredibly important for our mental well-being.
It’ equally important to take care of our physical health as well. Overeating, consuming empty calories, too much sugar, lack of sleep, and hydration – all of these can cause damage to our health in the long run, not to mention the sluggishness that comes after days of not taking care of ourselves. The effects of going off track during the holidays are therefore seen both in the short and long term.
Now, we don’t mean to say that you should become a social pariah and avoid having fun altogether! After all, YOLO, right? Healthy eating during the holidays doesn’t have to be a dreaded topic that you want to run away from, and in this post, we’ll list five of our favorite recipes that are both healthy and festive. So, pull up a chair and join us as we serve you some delicious, mouthwatering Christmas treats, straight from The Whole Experience kitchen!
